How should your Akupanel | 60 mounted?
Akupanel | 60 Assembly Installation on walls with glue
Step 1: Prepare the wall
Start by preparing the wall. Wipe the wall with a cloth and remove any screws, nails, and other obstructions so that the wall is completely even. Then you can measure and mark where the panels are to be mounted.
Step 2: Choose the direction of the panels
The next step is to decide the direction in which your panels should face. With our Akupanel | 60, it is possible to rotate the panels to create either clear horizontal or vertical stripes on your wall.
If you want the stripes to be horizontal, make sure to rotate the panel so that the slats are facing upwards. If you want the stripes to be vertical, the slats should face horizontally.
Step 3: Measuring the Wall
After you have chosen the direction of your panels, you can measure the wall and mark where the first panel will be installed.
Step 4: Mounting the Acoustic Panels with Adhesive
Start by cutting the top of the glue tube and insert it into the glue dispenser. Then evenly distribute the adhesive on the felt on the back of a panel.
You are now ready to mount the panels. Pay attention to the chosen direction of the panel when mounting – the felt and slats should face the desired direction. Place the panel against the wall in the marked area. Press the panel against the wall across its entire surface so that the adhesive spreads well and adheres. The adhesive can hold the panel on the wall after 20-30 seconds. Check if the panel is mounted straight using a spirit level as you go.
Use the spacers
When the next panels are to be mounted, it is important that the spacers included in the panel packages are used. The felt does not go all the way to the edge of the slats on one side. If the panels are therefore pushed completely together, the felt distance between the two panels will be too small. In addition, the panels must be done in the same way as the step before.
